Cybersecurity for At-Home Workers
At-home workers often use their personal equipment and work in a physically unsecured environment. This increases their vulnerability to cyber attacks and requires judicious deployment of security appliances, remote endpoint monitoring, and the enforcement of policies that follow leading practices. Progent's veteran roster of certified data security experts can assist your company to plan, implement and administer a compliant cybersecurity environment that safeguards vital information in IT networks that include at-home workers.
- Firewalls allow companies to create a network that can be securely accessed by on-premises users and by an at-home workforce, mobile users, suppliers, customers, and the public. Modern firewall devices permit you to assign and control different permissions to various groups of users and to scale your IT network and adjust your security as your business evolves and as network attacks grow more sophisticated. Progent supports both new and older firewall devices from all major vendors including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, WatchGuard, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet.

- Remote Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the various devices used by teleworkers and either reject or identify and mitigate the latest threats such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring (ASM) services, a small-footprint agent is installed on each protected endpoint device, monitoring all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning to detect zero-day attacks at inception. When an attack is discovered, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately isolates the infected device from the network to contain the malware. Since the ProSight ASM agent is self-contained, endpoints remain protected even if they are not connected to the Internet.

- Security Audits can assess the vulnerability of your network to all classes of outside and local security threats for a network that includes teleworkers. Progent can deploy online, automated cybersecurity analysis scanning for rapidly and affordably detecting a wide variety of security holes that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security assessment experts, which can be managed by network security professionals with top credentials such as CISM, CISSP, and GIAC, can assist your company to audit your workflows and policies and assess your IT infrastructure to allow you to implement top-level protection for your at-home workers.
